ZTE MF683



  • Hello,

    I'm trying to get ZTE MF683 working it is in the known working list but does not seem to work. Does anyone have experience with it? I have done the disable cdrom. I have also used usb_modswitch. Using the following shell command I get the following?

    /usr/local/sbin/usb_modeswitch -v 0x19d2 -p 0x2000 -V 0x19d2 -p 0x0157 -I -W

    Take all parameters from the command line

    • usb_modeswitch: handle USB devices with multiple modes
    • Version 2.2.0 (C) Josua Dietze 2014
    • Based on libusb1/libusbx

    ! PLEASE REPORT NEW CONFIGURATIONS !

    DefaultVendor=  0x19d2
    DefaultProduct= 0x0157
    TargetVendor=  0x19d2
    NeedResponse=0

    InquireDevice=1

    Look for target devices …

    trying to use one of these modems as well 4 years later after this post...

    doesn't seem like this is recognized by the u3g driver ... I don't see any sign of that in the dmesg ...



  • so I fixed this. I plugged the modem into a win box, connected to the serial port then

    AT+ZCDRUN=E
    this enters the modem into the download mode disabling the drives altogether. (AT+ZCDRUN=8 did NOT work for me)

    this is being saved in the nvram.

    plugged it back in, worked right away !
